                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt DULLENS will ever be the same.  The ROOKIE METALLICA 39 guild has had a 3-0-0 
turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of 
thing can lead.  And let's see, STARFLOWER fought SLASHER and gained 22 points and 
contributed to CARDOW HUNTERS' 1-4-0.  SLASHER has lost to STARFLOWER, falling 14 
points, while helping make MANIACS a 2-2-0 turn.  And not without some honor, KILLER 
now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of DULLENS.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at Arthur's 
Last Stand until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in DULLENS, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in DULLENS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
